New monarch butterfly waystation at Barren River
By Danny Sallee
Lucas, KY - The Garden Club of Kentucky will dedicate the latest of a series of Monarch butterfly waystations at Barren River Lake State Resort Park on Monday, Aug. 14.
Monarch waystations are gardens that provide milkweed, the only plant that Monarch caterpillars will eat, nectar producing flowers, and shelter for some of the millions of migrating Monarch butterflies. Monarch butterfly habitats are disappearing due to development and the widespread use of herbicides, and gardens like these help provide the resources the butterflies need for their migration to and from Mexico.
The ceremony will be at 10amCT, just below the lodge patio and pool, at Barren River Lake State Resort Park, 1149 State Park Rd, Lucas, KY.
Members of the Garden Club of Kentucky and the Glasgow Garden Club began working with park staff in 2013 to design and install a Monarch waystation at Barren River Lake State Resort Park.
Other Kentucky State Parks with Monarch waystations include: Kentucky Dam Village, Waveland, Blue Licks Battlefield, Perryville Battlefield, Old Fort Harrod, Fort Boonesborough, Cumberland Falls, Lake Barkley, Jenny Wiley, Pennyrile Forest and General Butler. Carter Caves and William Whitley House plan to open waystations soon.
